A dark and almost a bit scaring symphony with a touch of the exotic India jungle is what first comes to my mind. Like a temple ceremony. Did you have a program when you composed it?

I have put it up on the site.

Yes it's scaring because this Symphony is upon Lebanon civil war from 1975 till 2000 memories,I can say it's program of this war.
I hope you add the score too that I post it as PDF file.
Regards
Setrak

Finally got around to listening to this. For some reason I don't quite understand, I always love music that is dark and troubled, and this certainly fits the bill. In the first few minutes, the tonal language reminded me of Shostakovich but gradually the music seemed to evolve into something more primordial and radical. An interesting combination, the searing strings with pounding percussion. A pity that is a midi recording, both the strings and the timpany sound rather monochrome. All the same, a fascinating listen, to which I shall return more often.
